Renowned comic book creator Rob Liefeld is taking his storytelling from the panels to the page with a memoir. Announced by The Hollywood Reporter, the memoir, titled Robservations, will be published by BenBella Publishing in early 2025. Known for his significant contributions to the comic book industry over the last three decades, Liefeld will provide a candid look into the pivotal moments and behind-the-scenes stories of his illustrious career.

“BenBella is thrilled to partner with legendary comic artist Rob Liefield on the release of his memoir. Rob offers a glimpse into the hurdles and triumphs of his 38-year career, the origin stories of many beloved characters, and what’s next for the creator of Deadpool and Cable. We’re excited to help Rob share his story with fans who love comic books as much as he does.” said BenBella CEO Glenn Yeffeth.

“I have had a lifelong love affair with comic books. They have been my passion since I was seven years old. Having been fortunate to break into the business as a teenager in the 80s, I’ve seen five decades of tremendous change, quite a bit of upheaval, and a fair amount of rebellion and betrayal. Some of which I started. It’s been quite a ride, and I’m eager to share this incredible ride with everyone,” sad Liefeld “Watching my creations become roles portrayed by Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Minka Kelly with many more on the way, is a crazy culmination of my comic book dreams as a kid. Over the course of my career, comic books have become a rich minefield that drives pop culture.”

Rob Liefeld’s comic book career

In the early 1990s, Liefeld rose to fame with his work on Marvel’s The New Mutants and later X-Force, marking the beginning of a transformative period in his career and the comic book industry. His departure from Marvel in 1992, alongside other notable illustrators, to found Image Comics, catalyzed a significant shift towards creator-owned comic books.

Image’s launch of Youngblood #1, Liefeld’s brainchild, not only set the stage for the company’s success but also championed the concept of creators retaining ownership over their work. His popular comic book creations also include Bloodstrike and Prophet.

The announcement of Rob Liefeld’s memoir coincides with the anticipated return of Deadpool to cinemas in Deadpool & Wolverine, set for release on July 26. Liefeld, who is credited with co-creating Deadpool, a character that has achieved significant popularity in both comics and film, will likely offer insights into the creation and evolution of such iconic characters in his upcoming memoir.
